The 2007-08 iPod project is producing exciting results. Led by Jeffrey Riman, the CETís coordinator and instructional designer, this work in progress includes faculty from across the curriculum. Faculty members Virginia Bonofiglio, David Drogin, Beth Harris, Michael Cokkinos, Michele Washington, Bil Donovan, Jean Jacullo, Gary Wolfe and Naomi Gross met during the semester to launch their different projects. One of the key goals for this new initiative was to use iPod technology to support active and student-centered learning- to explore the possibilities beyond a "new-wave delivery of an old time lecture."††iPods were secured for students and faculty, giving everyone the opportunity to fully participate. Some of the resulting projects include: student narratives of architectural landmarks and museum tours, European travel logs and alternative experiences that interface words and images.
This work is the result of a CET partnership with IT, and many thanks must go to Carolyn Rieger, IT, and to Meredith Sharpe and James Pearce for the technical support they continue to provide to this project. We look forward to an even broader initiative next year, with greater numbers of faculty and fantastic new ideas!
